    Ok so I had some coilovers put on my car before Christmas and I'm really happy with them, however it did scrape a bit this been due to my 25mm spacers on the rear but I am refusing to take them off as they look so much better with them on so I have had quite a bit of camber put on to stop this, here's a couple of pics just needing some front spacers until I get my new wheels...I'm hoping for some inspiration on the wheels so what do you like let me know, I want 19" and staggered and the most aggressive fitment possible so what do we all like or suggest then for wheel preference????

    I know I am a bit biased but I really do think the Black Edition 19" wheels would look mean .......

    Yeah I like the rotar arms, but I would want genuine 19" and 9j I've been looking for some for ages but not many come up for sale and I don't fancy paying dealer price.

    I would be willing to sell mine, but would still be fairly expensive... Haha.

    These cars look really high due to things like the stone guards down the sides and the rear bumper having such a curve from back to bottom of the bumper, there is about 4" from the stone guard to the bottom of the sill, think I need bags lol :)

    dont you think ET43 plus 8.5 stretch is wide enough??
    i think the 9.0 stretch might rub under heavy load.
    try the German ebay as you can get better bargains there.

    I would have 10j rotors if they did them with the correct offset to be honest

    in the past when looking for rear perfect rims
    i have resorted to travelling to Germany to pick them up
    and have done so on 6 occassions, so it depends on on what private value
    you place on getting the right look for you car.
    regardless of the distance the results are priceless.
    Germany is part of the EU so no customs to pay unless you
    breach alcohol or ciggarette quotas which is the only aspect whe the UK
    break the EU aggreement.

    I know I do like the look of audi rotors but I sometimes like to be a little bit different lol and if I get rotors it will be just another A4 with rotors on everybody wants rotors and so they should because they suit the car but as I say I wanna be different, what's the fitment like against the arches and what width have you got??? Post a pic to see how they look but not a side view one lol I wanna see how flush the are. :)
